Recognizing our dedication to excellence, U.S. News & World Report has once again named Houston Methodist Hospital to its prestigious Honor Roll. We are nationally ranked in 11 specialties, the most in the state, and have been national leaders throughout the COVID-19 pandemic in research, offering innovative treatments and surpassing CDC safety standards. We are proud to be the No. 1 hospital in Texas and one of the top 20 hospitals in the nation.
Houston Methodist's reputation for outstanding care, treatments and research attracts patients from Texas, the nation and around the world.
Our teams of surgeons, physicians, researchers and other experts collaborate to solve medicine’s biggest challenges and turn discoveries into new therapies and treatments. Our drive for innovation is rooted in the legacy created by world-renowned cardiac surgeon Dr. Michael E. DeBakey. He performed the first coronary artery bypass surgery in Texas, and pioneered surgical advances, which have become universal practices.
These days, Houston Methodist not only is well established as a leader in heart and vascular treatments, research and education based on DeBakey’s achievements and reputation, but also is known for spearheading breakthroughs in organ transplantation, orthopedics, cancer treatment and neurology and neuroscience.
